ABOUT THE FAMILY

About Desporte & Sons Seafood Market & Deli

Desporte & Sons Seafood Market & Deli is a family-run business, the oldest family-run seafood market situated on the Gulf Coast, in fact. The business has been passed down generation to generation, and the family runs the business as if they’re serving their own family. 

They have a great attention to details. They choose only the best fish to serve you and your family, whether you’re taking it fresh from the market or cooked from Chef Tim’s kitchen for lunch. It’s always the freshest it can get and the family is always there to serve you. They work their day in and day out and love what they do. Sean and Artie are the owners of the business and work alongside other family members. They plan to keep the tradition going forever!

Becoming the oldest family name in the United States seafood industry doesn’t happen over night. After some math it takes somewhere around 52,017 nights, or 122 years. That’s how long Desporte & Sons Seafood has been providing delicious Gulf seafood to generations of families throughout the south. Now in their fifth generation of the family business, the Desporte family’s secret to success really never was a secret.

Recently passed away, and was so loved by, of course, his family and the entire community, and worked at the market until his last days. He completely enjoyed what he did to the fullest: talking with his customers, serving them the best Gulf Coast seafood he could, so that they could also, in turn, enjoy great moments with their families around the dinner table.
